Michael,

you suggested adding a new technique.  I used your information to edit the 
current one.

Technique 9.3.A [priority 2] Check scripts for logical event handlers
Discussion Status:
awaiting discussion
Evaluation:
The following event handlers will trigger this technique:
onMouseDown
onMouseUp
onClick
onMouseOver
onMouseOut
onMouseMove
Example Language:
For scripts, specify logical event handlers rather than device-dependent 
event handlers.
Repair Technique
"onMouseDown" add or replace with "onKeyDown"
"onMouseUp" add or replace with "onKeyUp"
"onClick"  add or replace with "onKeyPress"
"onMouseOver" add or replace with "onFocus"
"onMouseOut" add or replace with "onBlur"
